Item Details

Spain, 1944. Officially, the Civil War has been over for five years, but a small group of rebels fights on in the northern mountains of Navarra. Dreamy 10-year-old Ofelia and her pregnant mother Carmen move to Navarra, joining her new stepfather, Captain Vidal. A Fascist officer, he is under orders to destroy the rebels. Ofelia discovers an overgrown, tumbledown labyrinth and meets an ancient faun who claims to know her true identity and secret destiny. She can learn them if she completes three tasks before the full moon. But no one must know: not her ailing mother or her new friend Mercedes. Time is running out, and both Ofelia and the rebels will have to battle hardship and cruelty in order to gain their freedom. Who can be trusted in a time of lies and danger? Is the faun telling the truth ...? If not, who is?

I'm giving it 1 star because... I'm not 100% certain but... Is there no english option? Couldn't watch because I don't speak Spanish. Does it say on the cover that it isn't in English?

Under the "Full Record tab" it says:
Other Language: In Spanish with optional English or Spanish subtitles; closed-captioned

A film with an entertaining mix of "reality", the Spanish Civil War, and a fantasy, a child's dream of a another world in the underground filled with beauty.

A feast for analysis if you're writing an essay but not for children or the faint of heart. The Pale Man still gives me the heebie jeebies. I suppose if you liked the movie Coraline or John Connolly's The Book of Lost Things, you'd probably enjoy this.

Some graphic scenes but they're not too bad.
The girl has a very vivid imagination. Creative princess story but not for little children to watch. Older, mature children might be okay.
Overall I really enjoyed it.

Freaky,scary,spooky,and worthy of HOMETHEATER!! I enjoyed this movie and liked some of the very cool sounds in it. I enjoyed listening to the little flying creature flying around in my surround speakers. Very nice effects. And the look of the creature sitting at the dinner table with the eyes in it's hands was pure eye candy. But there are quite a few good scenes that have great sound and awesome visual effects. This movie is part of my collection. I'm giving this unusual movie 5 stars!!!!! Amazing fantasy creatures, very good sound effects, and a very good story. Pork chops smothered in green peppers,onions,brown rice, and wine.

I am a fan of Guillermo del Toro and this movie is considered some of his best work. It is imaginative and very colorful. The movie takes place during the remnants of the Spanish Civil War which adds a bit of depth. The story is well written and as with all of del Toro’s work the supernatural characters are some of the best in movies. The main character is a young girl and you could almost mistake this for a children’s movie, but it has a dark side.

Such a beautiful movie. Such a horrible reality.
